We welcome Sharon Folbrecht as the new Wisconsin HDSA Social Worker.
Sharon Folbrecht received her masters degree in social work from the University of WI Madison in 1979. She has worked in many different areas of social work and in the states of AZ, CA, and WI. Some of her memorable positions were in Child Protective Services and medical social work including an ER in Madison, WI for 17 years. She also worked at WEA Trust as a mental health care manager. Sharon advocated for members to get the services they needed along with supporting them through life issues.
Sharon lives in Stoughton, Wisconsin in a condo with her two cats, Gracie and Lucy. She spends as much time as she can with her 91 year old mother who resides in an assisted living facility. She enjoys traveling and has been to many countries. Her favorite spots include beaches and sunshine.
Sharon looks forward to this new venture of advocating and being a support person for family and friends of Huntington's Disease.
